ITI Relaunches EMedia, Offers KMWorld to Knowledge Management Subscribers

Information Today, Inc. (ITI), publisher of EMedia magazine, has announced that it will relaunch the publication in August as EMedia: The Digital Studio Magazine. ITI also announced that 30,000 subscribers to Knowledge Management magazine, which ceased publication last fall, will now receive subscriptions to the ITI-published KMWorld magazine. In another release, ITI announced that Information Science Abstracts (ISA) has a new editorial advisory board.

EMedia

Editorial changes to EMedia offer expanded coverage of the digital studio environment, including content creation workstations and all the advanced technology in today's digital media studios, such as nonlinear editing solutions; high-resolution display hardware; asset storage and retrieval; audio/video encoders; CD/DVD authoring, recording, duplication, and printing; visual effects software; and more.

"EMedia will significantly expand to cover the studio environment and workstations that people use to manipulate audio, video, and imagery," said Adam Pemberton, EMedia publisher and founder. "Our purview in the past has been limited to peripheral technologies that creative and technical people use, such as DVD recorders and the software that drives them. We are expanding on that by covering the entire digital media studio, the workstations, and all the parts that go into them. The past 18 months have revealed a trend toward integrated software applications, such as DVD authoring and video editing. The digital studio is also a converging environment for media creation and production. Now, EMedia: The Digital Studio Magazine is all about this environment, whether it's in a corporate multimedia department, commercial video/audio/post facility, or a service bureau."

The August issue will go on sale July 31. Now in its 15th year of publication, EMedia will relaunch with a redesign of the contents and departments, larger trim size, and heavier paper.

KMWorld

Knowledge Management magazine, formerly published by Freedom Technology Group, ceased publication last fall. Since then its ownership has been pursuing an alternative for its subscribers. For years, Knowledge Management magazine andKMWorld magazine were "friendly competitors," so it was a logical decision to provide Knowledge Management subscribers with KMWorld, according to the announcement. Both publishers feel it is important that Knowledge Management subscribers continue to receive a free subscription to a magazine that is packed with the information they need to move forward with their KM initiatives.

"We welcome the former Knowledge Management subscribers to the KMWorld community," said Tom Hogan, president and CEO of Information Today, Inc. "The fields of knowledge management, content management, and enterprise portals are exploding, and we feel very privileged to be publishing the only magazine dedicated to telling their stories."

ISA Editorial Advisory Board

According to the announcement, each member of ISA's new advisory board will play an important role in advising on the continuing development and improvement of ISA over the next 2 years.

The board members are April Bohannan, head of cataloging at Virginia Beach Public Library; Michael Koenig, dean of the College of Information and Computer Science, and dean and professor at the Palmer School of Library and Information Science at Long Island University; Signe Larson, formerly librarian at the U.S. Department of the Interior in Washington, D.C., and now president of her own consulting business, Information Masters, based in Manzanita, Oregon; Tefko Saracevic, professor at the School of Communication, Information and Library Studies at Rutgers University; Carol Tenopir, professor at the School of Information Sciences at the University of Tennessee­Knoxville; and Tom Wilson, professor emeritus in information management at the University of Sheffield in the U.K.
